Skip to comments.The Inner Quest of Newt Gingrich (1995: Marianne Promised To "Undermine Everything" For Newt)

........But his greatest presidential stumbling block may be right under his nose. At home, Newt's second wife, Marianne Ginther Gingrich, tells me she doesn't see herself in the First Lady's job. "Watching Hillary has just been a horrible experience," commiserates Marianne. "Hillary sticking her neck out is not working."
What happens if Newt runs?, I ask.
"He can't do it without me," she replies. "I told him if I'm not in agreement, fine, it's easy" --she giggles at her naughtiness. "I just go on the air the next day, and I undermine everything...I don't want him to be president and I don't think he should be."
"Right now, the presidency is not a single person. It's not so much what he'd be doing. It's what I'd be doing.".........

BTW - Mitt. This and the Talent personal attacks have ensured I'll be working for your defeat in the General Election if you buy the nomination. Thousands of hours helping Conservatives here in my life, and I'll be busting my butt to do everything to see you lose! Congrats on your scorched Earth campaign........you've ensured a guy who pulled the lever for McCain won't pull the lever for scum like you.
Dirty tricks ping!
She’s likely an evil Democrat.
Sounds like a political version of Fatal Attraction.
Notice gay gossip is pushing this story. It’s all about a power grab for his homosexual connections inside Romney’s campaign. I’ve lost all respect for Drudge for pushing this garbage for his own agenda.
Newt can handle it but it will give FOX, Talk Radio and Drudge more ammo for their boy Mitt
I will sit this out...first time I ever said that..if Mitt gets it.
The GOP can just collapse..maybe something better will rise from the ashes
The Dixie-Meets Mountain West-Meets Indiana-Meets Outliers Elsewhere Party
Aren’t wives wonderful?
Remember that if it weren’t for vetoing wives, we’d all be trying to nominate Mitch Daniels right now.
Newt is getting the Axelrod Treatment
Uh, that was back in 1995.
Rats at ABC will hold the interview back, NOT because of their high “ethics,”
but because waiting will make all the Republican voters in SC who support Newt look extra-stupid later on, if they wait to release it.
Makes the (R) party overall look more stupid and/or eeeeee-vil...
Wow. What a witch! Not to be an apologist for Newt’s past bad behavior . . . but perhaps this explains a little why he went lookin’ for love in the wrong places.
How many would think they would get a good reference from the ex when applying for a job. ABC is lower than whale poop.
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”
Marianne Gingrich's 1995 Esquire interview has been discussed here on FR at length, and for months now.
This is no surprise.
Nor is it a "dirty trick." You may disagree with Newt's ex-wife's analysis and observations, but she's in a position from which it's perfectly legitimate to speak her mind.
I can see why he divorced the vapid bitch.
No doubt wife #1 and #3 and the daughter will come out to defend Newt.
If ABC airs this interview tomorrow (as a tweet from a Politico reporter indicates) Republican voters in South Carolina will direct their ire, not at Marianne Gingrich, but at the left-wing MSM, for its repeated attempts to fix the election for Romney.
It would contribute to a Gingrich victory in South Carolina.
I think this woman is carrying the big old grudge....I don’t want to be FLOTUS so no one should want to....I hope folks do not take the bait
